Editor’s Note: This week’s Eagle Rants brought to you from an Internet cafe in a Big Y in western Massachusetts. Even on vacation, Eagle Rants Editor edits Eagle Rants.
•I know no one cares but Eagles Nest took out Cheetos Fries. Seriously this is important.
•@Don’t want Class of 2016-Speaking as a class of 2016 member who has heard a lot of stupid things on that page, I’ve never heard the first year thing. And honestly, I don’t want some of them here either, but whatever. Thanks for judging all of us based on one person! I feel so welcomed!
•@F***politics. Honestly, politics aren’t the problem. People are. F*** people, man.
•@snugglesforcash-I can’t decide whether that idea is brilliant or idiotic. It sounds kinda nice to have a snuggle-prostitute around when you’re feeling down.
•I used to rant…then I took an arrow to the knee
•As an incoming freshman here’s my rant. I absolutely have judged 5/6 of the people on the class of 2016 Facebook page they are extremely annoying and I hope there are some normal people when I actually get to college that woul be lovely
•If the one thing you’ve managed to notice about 2016’s page is the fighting, then you’re really not reading it. Over the past few months we’ve become really close and are so ready to join the AU community with our new friends. I, for one, am thrilled that I’m going someplace new knowing that I’ll be surrounded by caring & thoughtful friends.
•The members of the Class of 2016 aren’t “demanding” to be called first-years… An upperclassmen OL suggested that term be used. Cool your jets.
•Thanks to the ding-bat that showed the freshmen the Eagle Rants page, now this is going to become their new AU obsession and it will lose all of its charm.
•@Class of 2016 facebook page: I’m an incoming freshman and I preemptively apologize for being part of that group. I can only hope that the most prolific posters on that page turn out to be different in real life.
•When I’m home, I really miss school, but then I go on Facebook, read your stupid, uneducated political rant status updates, and remember why I wanted to come home in the first place. Anyone else get in those moods where literally EVERYONE from AU is driving you crazy?
•Shout out to AU Central for sending the Fall 2012 bill out NINE days before payment is due. Nice.
•Can someone post the link to the AU class of 2016 facebook page where the freshmen are arguing? I want to have a good laugh too! But the only AU class of 2016 facebook page I saw barely had any comments on it, so I think I had the wrong one.
•I hope I don’t get into law school so I can have an excuse for my family as to why I didn’t go. I really don’t want to.
•@LDR ranter talking to yourself: I do it to. Especially in the shower. It’s weird going from having that person you share everything with right there and then having them gone. I probably shouldn’t have ignored all my friends to the point where I barely have any left.
•I secretly check the eagle rants with the hopes of reading something you posted about me. Yet, here I am posting about you instead. You’re amazing and I really like you a lot. Please don’t find anyone else to replace me when I’m gone.
•And now the 2016ers are posting about how we all must be obsessed with them, because we’re ranting about them. Kids, with those egos, you’re going to fit in just fine at AU. And I mean that truthfully.
•RE: Has anyone else seen the Class of 2016 page?
I’m in the class of 2016 and hate the Facebook group, and it seems most of my class. I try to not go on it because I don’t want to hate everyone I’m going to school with before I even get to campus.
Maybe Should Have Gone To GW
•BABY YOU LIGHT UP MY WORLD LIKE NOBODY ELSE, THE WAY THAT YOU FLIP YOUR HAIR GETS ME OVERWHELMED, but WHEN YOU SMILE AT THE GROUND IT AIN’T HARD TO TELL YOU DON’T KNOW oh oh. . .YOU DONT KNOW YOUR BEAUTIFUL oh oh THATS WHAT MAKES YOU BEAUTIFUL.
•Since when have broke college students needed to pay to cuddle with someone? Have you ever walked by a residence hall lounge and poked your head in? The only people who would pay for the privilege of snuggling with you are lonely older people (probably men).
•Class of 2016. I don’t care how much you would rather be going to Hogwarts than AU, YOU ARE NOT FIRST YEARS!
•@Popular Vote. You want a vote that matters? Than here’s what you do: stop buying from corporations, big box stores, and chains. You want your vote to matter, than stop taking your dollar and spending it somewhere else. Because when you take your dollar out the community you take your power out of the community and you send it to a CEO in New York or LA or Chicago. Then you have the gaul to complain about how you have no power, why you have made yourself powerless.
•2016 should be hazed.
•“But I hustled.” That’s not going to make me want to sleep with you. Sorry I’m not sorry.
•I’m so tired of people proclaiming to me that the WONK campaign is “working.” The fact remains that AU ignored and insulted the right of students to have a say, and continues to do so. SHAME ON YOU AU. END THE WONK CAMPAIGN.
•just started watching true blood so good!!
•Guys start listening to blood diamonds
•PHONATHON IS STILL DOWN HERE YOU GUYS. Please spice up your rants for our entertainment.
•I was actually excited to meet the 2016 class, but seeing their facebook group has turned me off to them before I’ve even had a chance to meet them. I appreciate loving AU so much you want to rule the school already, but chill. If you want respect, you have to give it too.
•Who else misses sex?
•You shouldn’t read eagle rants, “it’s a trap!”. -this message brought to you by Admiral Akbar’s PAC.
•I just spent an hour alone in my apartment dancing to Spice Girls music. Saturday night well spent. MLIA.
•F*ck you, I’m from California, we speed. And you’re from California too, so I don’t know why you’re judging me so hard.
•The AdBlock plugin is amazing. I just discovered that I can use it to block that big blood-red WONK ad from AU’s home page. Awesomeness.
•I actually don’t mind the whole wonk thing; I kind of like it truthfully. #wonkwonk
•Notice: Less than $50 in the cash register at all times.
Warning: More than $50 of ammunition on the premises at all times. Some of us choose to work for a living.
•The summer is going SO fast, and all I’m doing is WORKING. I’d rather be busy than bored but I wish I could have a little break…
•Just as a warning, I’m going to use some adult language:
Honor, courage, commitment. Justice, equity, integrity, kindness. Friendship, fidelity, love.
Not the kind you were expecting?
•Can it be time for school to start again already? I don’t like having all my friends spread out all over the map :(
•I really, really need everyone in my abroad program to chill out about how excited they are to go back home and how much they miss home. I don’t miss home at all, I have nothing to go back to, everything in my life is a mess. I just want to stay here with all my friends in the middle east, but I can’t, and they’re all eager to leave anyways.
•I’m actually depressed because I don’t have cable to watch the Olympics. This summer sucks.
